Producer 21 – Discover what’s new
Production tracking software for animation studios
Scene Focus view
This new view allows you to focus on a specific scene and explore all relevant information quickly and easily – Status, notes, dependencies, and other details.
Artist view / Daily dashboard
We have revamped this view to include a simplified dashboard of all your daily tasks and priorities. Users can easily check out the Artist View and quickly review their priorities for the day, see their progress, and stay motivated with everything that is being accomplished.
Review tool & video stitching
One major improvement added to the review tool is that video files are now standardised upon upload. Any format discrepancies will be converted to a common standard so that the Review Tool can easily stitch all videos together without a hitch. This improvement translates into better performance on playback.
Additional improvements to the Review Tool include:
- Simplified interface with adjustments based on our client feedback
- Editing new or existing notes is easier and more efficient than ever before
- Notes can be tagged to a specific review session for better sorting
- Drawing over video capabilities have been enhanced (Lightbox, Line thickness, Drawing modifier)
- You can now share your review sessions by generating a URL
Other noteworthy improvements
Asset Management: Assets are now job/episode driven, simplifying search and asset management. And you can now create multiple assets at once, saving time when preparing a new episode.
Improved UI/UX. Big and small, these improvements have been done throughout Producer 21, for example: It is now easier to order and group notes, tasks status and assignee modifications are updated in real-time and several icons and their naming have been modified for clarity.
